Is it really April already? Time flies, what with research grant deadlines, conferences and teaching. All the latest from us below, starting with…


Stand-up Science

Our first event of 2013 was Stand-up Science on the 20th March. The event followed the successful speed-dating format which was utilized to great effect in 2012. Participants had three minutes to talk to every other participant about their research and potential areas of collaboration before moving to the next researcher.
